    I think your best bet would be to contact your midwife or GP for advice. All I can offer is that you should make sure you keep mobile as much as possible to reduce the risk of DVT.

    I agree with the flight socks and drinking water advice. I only flew domestic so didnt wont to splash out on the cost of the socks. But they are defenitly worth buying for a long hall flight. I kept moving and curculating my feet ankles and legs through out the flight.
